Preloading subscribers for GetResponse / AWeber?

by Kelvin Chan 6 replies
Hi Warriors,

Just need to clarify a thing or two in relation to preloading subscribers on GetResponse and AWeber.

1) Whenever preloading is done, are these subscribers assumed to be already "opted-in" and therefore need to opt-out should they want to?

Or is it the case of ...

2) Needing to get these preloaded subscribers to opt-in before they are actually in the list

Any assistance is appreciated.

    What do you mean by preloading? You got these subscribers somewhere else and want to move them to a new company... or some other scenario?

    Most services are going to make the people at least confirm again to get on the list.

    A good way to proceed is to mail them several times from the old service and ask them to opt in again, explaining that you are moving your list, and perhaps offer them some gift for doing so.

        Hi fatfookbob,

        If that's actually happening, it's terrible. Would you mind sharing which service you had that experience with, so that I can avoid doing business with them. You can PM me if you prefer.

          Constant Contact is good but its not an autoresponder. They are supposed to have auto responder capabilities soon. I use them to send out emails to my list.

      Hi Wilson,

      I've just tested GetResponse's import subscribers feature with my personal email and yes ... it requires the person to confirm subscription before they are added. So what you said is right.

      @ Warriors:

      Does anyone know of any sites like GetResponse or AWeber that allows pre-optin of subscribers? (where they are automatically opted in and need to unsubscribe if they so choose to)

      Cheers
      Wilson

        Another point: if you bought those subscribers, aweber won't let you import them, no matter how they opted in.
